It is possible that he has vitiligo (whitening of his skin), due to a yeast infection. He can apply Apor cream, twice daily, for fourteen days (this is available over the counter and safe to use). If it does not dissappear, he should consult his doctor for a possible biopsy of the skin for a diagnosis.
